Nope - I was told by 3 different gps not to touch senokot during pg, as it causes your anus to contract, and thats not great as *can* cause your uterus to in extreme and rare situations! Lactulose is the way to go, all it does is soften your stools (Sorry TMI) and makes it easier to pass, it doesn't taste grand, but put some in a glass of juice before you go to bed and you hardly taste it and by morning your constipation will be sorted!
I get HORRENDOUS constipation (before pregnancy and during) and lactulose is the best thing I have ever found, wish I had known about it before I got pg!
I bought it at Walmart here in Canada and used it once. It definiatly made me go, to the point where I was in pain because it kept trying to clear me out when there was nothing to clear out! I have heard that it can make your uterus contract which can cause some pain but both my old midwife and doctor say its safe.
